St. Gaspar preached the Word and proclaimed the saving power of Christ’s Blood to all people. He too was affected by an epidemic of cholera. He died on December 28, 1837. The physician who examined him said Gaspar died a “victim of charity,” worn out by his ministry to others. St. Gaspar never turned back. Weakened by ailments, called a fanatic or fool by people who should have supported him, imprisoned and impoverished, and challenged at every turn, his answer to God’s call was always ‘yes’. His followers continue to turn to him for inspiration, as they fulfill the wish he once expressed: “I wish that I could have a thousand tongues, to endear every heart to the Precious Blood of Jesus.”
Just as one drop of Christ’s Precious Blood washed away the sins of the world…just one Precious person can make a world of difference.
Are you that Precious Person?

Prayer for those affected by Coronavirus
Let us continue to pray for the who care for the sick,
those who suffer and the dying,
lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus Our Lord. Amen.
